The Traits Of A Good Wingman
How Good Of A Wingman Are You Really?
When you’re hitting the bars on the hunt for a girl, it helps to have a skilled buddy at your side to make sure you end up making out instead of striking out. A good wingman’s generosity knows no bounds, and he will do whatever is necessary to make sure his No. 1 (you) gets his best shot at getting with the girl.
It’s important that your wingman be your equal in many ways. He shouldn’t be much better looking, more fashionable or more charming than you — otherwise, you’ll end up becoming his wingman. Likewise, you can’t be far better looking, fashionable or charming either. The goal is to field a team of two equals, not a superstar and a bench warmer.
Oftentimes, the best wingman is a guy just like you, except that he has a serious girlfriend. Because he’s already in a relationship, he has nothing to lose, and will be happy to enjoy a night out and live vicariously through helping you. But even another single buddy with a sense of self-sacrifice can back you up at the bar. Read on for the top 10 traits of a good wingman.
